Ferdinand Magellan

Format Price Qty

This biography introduces young readers to the life of brave Portuguese sea captain Ferdinand Magellan, who confirmed that the earth is round and introduced the Pacific Ocean to Europeans while sailing for King Charles I of Spain. Through engaging text, readers learn about Ferdinand Magellan's childhood, education, and early inspirations, such as Christopher Columbus's discovery of the New World and Vasco da Gama reaching India by sailing south around Africa. A graphic sidebar explains the line of demarcation. And, a detailed map allows readers to follow Magellan's journey from Spain to the Spice Islands. Magellan's discovery of the Strait of Magellan, which links the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and his death on the island of Mactan are also discussed. Full-color photos, an index, a timeline, discussion questions, bold glossary terms, and phonetics accompany easy-to-read text and take readers on a journey around the earth.
